happy with how things have been going in washington. and that may get help to vote for brown. others have been very much in support of coakley saying that they believe that she would more match the ideas of, foegs, ted kennedy's legacy. and they've tried to get out the vote today. they have a much stronger organization to do those things of getting people to the polls because of all of the democrats' history here and their usual dominance in these elections. so part of it is energy versus organization in how things will play out today. and from what we've been hearing checking in with different polling places, the turnout has been bigger than you would ever expect for a special election. more like a midterm election, but not rising to the level of when a presidential race is on the ballot. so this has gotten huge attention here in boston. it's raleally is snapshot of th discontent. and for some they're imposing on to scott brown a chance to do something differently even if they're not entirely sure about all of his views. and martha coakley who remains popular here has been hit with
